Great route, good movement. I found I liked to bring my stick clip for the start. Doesn't really let up and I would say there are not any rests. Just enough there to clip and maybe grab chalk. Climbs more like a long boulder problem. Consensus seems to be 5.14a.

What was the hold that broke that made it go from 13d to 14a? any ideas? Fun route with about a billion possible ways to go about it. Felt good on it and would love to get back ASAP. any takers this week?

You can watch the old Masters of Stone video that shows Chris doing the FA. You can see a couple holds that have changed since then.

And just one added note to everyone - leaving fixed draws up at Pinnacles is not okay, so please clean your routes at the end of the day. Also, it's a great idea to pick up some trash while you're out there and if you source a stick from the bushes to use as a stick clip be sure to put it back and take the tape with you.
